Since the founding of New SorGun, brave pioneers have been venturing to the area to start a new life. While many found their way to the original settlement, others ventured out to make their own claims. Today we will take a look at two little settlements that have sprung up in the past year.
The first lies on the main road junction in the region (and the locals have called it “Junction” ever since). Nestled next to the Rannug River, it started out as a popular place to camp while folks made their way to New SorGun.
Now, in the spring of 1853, Junction has grown considerably, with almost 100 residents calling it home.
The town has a few farms, and is home to the first lumber yard outside New SorGun.
The settlers of Materburg intended make New SorGun their home, but upon arriving last year they realized all the good land was taken. Finding suitable land further south near the mouth of Mater Creek, the town was laid out and has been growing steadily ever since.
The influx of settlers to the area has been beneficial to the town of New SorGun, but with settlements springing up all over the region, will the original settlement be left in the dust? The competition has just begun.
